the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm

to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d

as a candidate in 2007, 2008, both he and joe biden said specifically that no president can unilaterally go to war without congressional authority. today he tempered his words some and said, well, i've got the authority to do whatever i want, but i'm choosing to go to congress. well i don't see it that way. i don't believe he does have the authority, but presidents have in the past usurped this authority. the bottom line is, once he comes to congress, if it's voted down in congress, i believe that he will be stopped. i will do everything in my power to stop and to have the vote go against involves us in syria. the ram factiifications may be r america, bad for israel. i think there are a lot of things that could wind up happening in the middle east with our involvement that would be unintended and may make the situation worse. >> before i let you go, september was already a very crowded month for all of the things you have to do, just to kick them down. debt ceiling, farm bill, the nsa and the ever-looming implementation of obamacare and now syria on top of that. how will that impact what yo

a forceful argument on that? >> well, i think that the joe biden and barack obama have invested a lot after the bush and cheney administration to come in and say these norms of the international order developing a stronger allergy to the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction across all chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, this is something that matters and needs to be restored. it's a defining effort by this administration. so i think the other thing is people like me have been skeptical of the president's moves in places like libya and his ability to keep that a small footprint military action and he delivered on that. i suspect that people like chuck hagel and the department of defense, denis mcdonough, his chief of staff, barack obama himself, have no enthuse wrachl about going to war again in the middle east. that makes us more compelling. iraq had an administration that wanted o run into war without evidence. this is a presidency reluctant to do this. but feeling not responding when such an international norm is collapsing, to take his back to the nightmares that us
